The Dick Smith portable DVD products being recalled.

Electronics retailer, Dick Smith, is recalling a range of its portable DVD and media players dating back to November 2009 due to fire risks posed by the internal batteries.

The retailer said that four Dick Smith-branded devices purchased across Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) between November 2009 and July 2012 should be returned as the “internal lithium-ion rechargeable battery may overheat and pose a fire risk.”

The models include (see image above):

Dick Smith 7-inch portable DVD media player (D6200) Dick Smith 7-inch dual screen portable DVD media player (D6201) Dick Smith 9-inch dual screen portable DVD media player (D6203) Dick Smith 7-inch portable DVD player (GE4203)

The catalogue numbers can be found on the rear or base of the products.

Dick Smith is advising customers to stop using the products, and return them to a store for a full refund.

Customers who require more information are invited to call Dick Smith’s customer service department (P: 1300 366 644) and select option ‘2’.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
